What a cat can give to humans

  • A cat has a calming effect on humans. The sight of a cat dozing in front of itself, but especially the steady purring, relaxes people who are stressed by the hectic pace and all everyday stress falls away.
  • Cats exude contentment and serenity. The sight of it delights the soul.
  • Cats are extremely sensitive and delicate animals. When a person is sick, they feel it and lie down with him. Often astonishingly exactly where the beloved mistress or master is in pain.
  • Cats are loyal companions to lonely people. Older people in particular, who may have been deeply affected by the death of a close relative and are suddenly alone, can get a new job and new courage through a cat and experience unconditional affection from the animal. A cat is also easier to care for than a dog, as it is not necessary to take the animal for long walks or the like. For older people, a not so young, fully grown cat with a calm character is ideal.
  • Acquiring a cat can even have a therapeutic effect on a person's psyche in this way. Cats are just fine!
  • Through a cat and the role model of their parents in dealing with living beings, children learn to take responsibility and to find access to nature again.
